that is a budweiser good time for sure! i'm in!

DAMN! 13.25 "service fee" oh well... I paid it! thanks veblen! i saw max creek one time and it wasn't really my cup of tea. i saw the ARU a bunch of times and talked to oteil about playing the bass for about ten minutes one time -- he was a very genuine dude....

billy K is a late revelation to me -- i have only realized in the last couple years what a genius drummer he was in his prime -- i am happy to support him any way i can -- this should at the very least be a lot of fun. my guess is they are going to be loud.

cheers!

no problema...

I am thinking about it myself...though it is hard to pull the trigger on purchasing anything the night before a contract ends...

wow, those service fees are getting up there...

btw: good call on the pretzel logic...right after you posted it I thought to myself: "I agree on steely dan, but there are better songs for them..."...but I thought through the catalog as I put the tune on and I could feel it from the opening notes..."oh yeah...I have never met napoleon..."

one other quick sd note: that night I was reading some of their album reviews on release and they were really misunderstood...most reviews gave them credit for the music but questioned the lyrics big-time...

it's a tough call on pretzel logic... i sold myself more on bobby doin Sailin Shoes... but i guess it is sort of over done ....though i was thinking JERRY maybe only bobby could pull of steely... i just think jer would have too much trouble with the first chorus: "dying to be a star, and make them laugh"... jerry didn't do songs that required much in the way of irony... he was way to "real.... man" but otherwise, he would have rocked it!


I would love to tour the Southland
In a travelling minstrel show
Yes I'd love to tour the Southland
In a traveling minstrel show

Yes I'm dying to be a star and make them laugh
Sound just like a record on the phonograph
Those days are gone forever
Over a long time ago, oh yeah

I have never met Napoleon
But I plan to find the time
I have never met Napoleon
But I plan to find the time

'Cause he looks so fine upon that hill
They tell me he was lonely, he's lonely still
Those days are gone forever
Over a long time ago, oh yeah

I stepped up on the platform
The man gave me the news
He said, You must be joking son
Where did you get those shoes?
Where did you get those shoes?

Well, I've seen 'em on the TV, the movie show
They say the times are changing but I just don't know
These things are gone forever
Over a long time ago, oh yeah



as far as STEELY lyrics!?! give me a break! they were fu#k*(% genius!

across the board ... but i mean, they wrote some of the best stuff!

I am thinking when jerry still had vocal dexterity...though you are right about the type of songs he sang, so probably not much room for dan there...

(sailin' shoes would have worked...)

so I am just re-discovering this tune:

MONKEY IN YOUR SOUL

I got one and you want four
It's so hard to help you
I can't keep up with you no more
And you treat me like it's a sin
But you can't lock me in
You want me here with you right to the end
No thank you my friend

I fear the monkey in your soul

Won't you turn that bebop down
I can't hear my heart beat
Where's that fatback chord I found?
Honey don't you think it was wrong
To interrupt my song?
I'll pack my things and run so far from here
Goodbye dear

I fear the monkey in your soul

of course I agree with the genius comment regarding their lyrics...I guess you either get it or you don't...

any major dude will tell you that they are great...

needed a break prior to listening to 69-02-22 again this eve...outside of the phenomenal dark star how can you beat a 17-minute plus Eleven:

Vallejo, CA...SALUTE!!!

i am calling it off for now veblen... and i am having the last word! (lol!)

we should probably have this discussion on the SD website (??) .... don't get me started!



A world become one
Of salads and sun
Only a fool would say that
A boy with a plan
A natural man
Wearing a white stetson hat
Unhand that gun begone
There's no one to fire upon
If he's holding it high
He's telling a lie

CHORUS:
I heard it was you
Talkin' 'bout a world
Where all is free
It just couldn't be
And only a fool would say that

The man in the street
Draggin' his feet
Don't wanna hear the bad news
Imagine your face
There is his place
Standing inside his brown shoes
You do his nine to five
Drag yourself home half alive
And there on the screen
A man with a dream

CHORUS

Anybody on the street
Has murder in his eyes
You feel no pain
And you're younger
Then you realize

CHORUS

FYI, they are playing the night before in Santa Cruz at Moe's Alley. First round on me if anyone wants to go....

And I have also had the pleasure of meeting Oteill - he really is one of the nicest, most genuine laid back folk you could ever hope to meet.

oh yea! now you ante up -- i already bought my tix for SF! i could potentially make it down for the show on the 12th.... but it is impossible for me to make that call now... it's a thursday so it would be tough.

oh well, we'll bring it up again around 2/1/09... the world(s) might be significantly different by then. or, of course, exactly the same :) which makes little difference anyway!

i am linking you to THIS for no conscious reason i am aware of... perhaps we have even discussed this here before... i am really not a fan of this guy, but i am Very impressed by this track! he sounds like NEIL fuckin YOUNG (in a good way).... and it always make me think someone is really tuned in when they can recontextualize a song like this. like i am also too cool to listen to the Foo FIghters, but ryan adams isn't -- and all the sudden, i know i have heard the original version of this song.... but w/o this version it would have never been more than static.

but that is just me.


I am a one way motorway
I'm the one that drives away
then follows you back home
I am a street light shining
I'm a wild light blinding bright
burning off alone

it's times like these you learn to live again
it's times like these you give and give again
it's times like these you learn to love again
it's times like these time and time again

I am a new day rising
I'm a brand new sky
to hang the stars upon tonight
I am a little divided
do I stay or run away
and leave it all behind?

it's times like these you learn to live again
it's times like these you give and give again
it's times like these you learn to love again
it's times like these time and time again
